Default RE: Antler Growth

I was always under the impression that if it broke off in velvet it will be completely fine next year, barring anything happening again. As long as the area where the antler attaches to the skull, I think its called the pedical(sp)....isnt damaged, it should be fine.
However, we have had deer running our property year after year that never had one side of their antlers, a genetic mutation of sorts. I also heard that if the pedical is damaged it can lead to some really irregular/non-typical racks....so put together with that drop-tine side again, that could be a real awesome rack. Good luck!
